Fontis Australia 2.3 5 33 33
I've got the extension installed on 1.4 but I can't get rates for Australia (I get them for all other countries) and I always get 0 for the number of delivery days. April 20, 2012
Have tried multiple time to install this on 1.6.2 and keep getting the following error CONNECT ERROR: Can't write to file: /home/mdt/public_html/downloader/.cache/community/Fontis_Australia-2.0.7/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/fontis/australia/system/config/form/field/array_dropdown.phtml All other Fontis Add-Ons load and work perfectly. We have tried changing permissions, no luck there April 17, 2012
Re Post module i have items that each weigh under the Aus post limit but the module combines the total weight rather than treat them as individual parcels and throws up can not deliever mesage... any suggestions March 30, 2012
Hi I am able to configure eParcel and place orders from front-end. From back-end I create the invoice. and then I try to create the shipping. I get the following error: “Cannot save shipment.” Please note that I did not select to send an email to customer. I have a fresh magento 1.6.1 install and I installed only Fontis_Australia 2.0.7 (stable) via Magentoconnect Manager. I guess I am doing something wrong or it is a problem with Fontis_Australia and the latest version of magento. Could you please help? Thanks February 2, 2012

Answer: 
You can follow the instructions to use it or ask here of what issues you are facing.
You can not use this extension for Magento Go as you can see above the extension key in the drop down i.e Platform is Community not Magento Go.

Answer: 
For some reason they seem to have the calculation setting incorrect and set to (KILO GRAMS) where it should be set to (GRAMS).

A quick fix!

For each product don't use anything below 1.000 grams.

For example: A product may weight 800grams (0.8000) but in most cases this wont show so the shipping methods so use anything above 1.0000.

the extra "0" is calculated as a point of a gram.

Note: Australia Post will ship up to 22kg within Australia and 20kg Internationally.

So the maximum per shipping for this to work is 22.0000.

I hope this helps.

Also, when using the connect manager to install this you will find if using a different theme that some fontis folders will not get added to your theme skin folder.

As Magento has a fall back for this it would not hurt to have these files in the theme folder to perhaps save Magento looking elsewhere as a fall back.

I have successfully set the Table Rates for “Weight vs. Destination” for Australia.

Everything works great except one thing....

It never calculate the correct shipping rates…

Product A - $100
Shipping : $15
Total=$115

But when we put 2 qty of Product A, that brings the
Total to $215
where as it should be $230.

Would you please help me on that, or put more light on this issue.

Also can this ext helps me in any ways?

Running on CE 1.8. I found that I could not get any shipping results to show for domestic shipping.

SHORT ANSWER:
Tick the "Use Registered Post" option or domestic shipping will not show any methods.

LONG ANSWER
Can only assume bug, code doesn't seem logical here:

app/code/community/Fontis/Australia/Model/Shipping/Carrier/Australiapost.php around line 85 I found this little strange condition.

"if ($this->getConfigData('registered_post'))"
Note the lack of curly braces that surround this condition.

This condition appears to force all shipping methods to be hidden for domestic. This doesn't seem correct to me, if you you do not turn on the "Use Registered Post" option in your Aus Post Settings, you will just get no result for domestic.

For the moment I've ticked "Use Registered Post" so all the options come back, but I would assume the correct behavior is for this part of the code to hide any methods with Insurance options if "Use Registered Post" is left off (unticked). In this case

I hope this helps people. It has been bugging me for about 2 hours. Finally tracked down the issue to that line of code.

Also note in this area (a little further down)

if ($this->getConfigData('person_to_person')) {
$charge += 5.50;
} elseif ($this->getConfigData('delivery_confirmation')) {
$charge += 1.85;
}
Hardcoded cost values here scare me. Why would these be hardcoded and not coming from either a setting, or the api calls? If AusPost change this charge, then everyone is hacking code to fix it.

Food for thought anyway. I'm happy I've got this working at least.
